I am still checking all my closets and the attic for UFOs. There are so many. The pile does not get any smaller. I find more every day. I did find a stack of table mats that are fun. I can remember finding the watermelon seed fabric and making the mats. Then, I went on to other things and put them aside.
I’ve finished four. They have a solid color backing. They will go to the Charleston, Me firemen’s silent auction.
There are four watermelon slices left to finish, I’ll find a seasonal fabric for the backing. Maybe a Christmas theme. That will make them reversible and I can use them in the winter,
I also found two lemon slices. How fun is that!! Great for a tea or a picnic. The backing could be another season or holiday. It takes just a few minutes to sew around the mats, The turning hole can be sewn while I watch TV. They finish so quickly.
I must have used a template and cut with scissors when I made the mats. I didn’t have a 10 degree ruler at that time. Cutting out the pieces four at a time with the ruler would streamline the process. A set of half circle table mats would make a great shower or Christmas gift.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
